Sotheby’s just auctioned off Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” for a record $119.9 million. How fitting. For the details, you can read the article in NY Times. I felt compelled to blog about this, primarily to just let the question hang in the air for a moment.
Let me answer the question with one of my own: HAS THE WORLD GONE @#$% INSANE? Makes me want to scream. The gap between the uber rich 1 percent and the rest of us (world poverty level at 60 percent) is ever widening. Makes me wonder what could be done for $120 million.
If you had $120 million and could use it to better the world in some way, how would you spend it?
